FrontPage 2000's Page view is extremely useful for a number of reasons but, like most Microsoft products today (and for that matter, most products by any software publisher), it significantly fails to take into account that good old 14-inch monitors are still very much in use. For that matter, so are many 15-inch monitors with 800×600 resolution. FrontPage offers most productivity when used with a larger monitor—17 inches or more—at resolutions between 1024×768 and 1600×1200, and with a color depth of 256 colors and up. But not everybody has that, and even those who do often have a second computer with lesser capabilities.

If you have a smaller display, a few options are open to you. First, a significant portion of the FrontPage display is taken up by items other than the main view. When in Page view, specifically, the Folder List and the Views bar occupy the left 25% (by default) of the display. To increase your working area—that is, the main viewing pane—you can hide or shrink both of them. To hide the Folder List, uncheck the Folder List item from the View menu. To hide the Views bar, uncheck Views Bar from the View menu. Presto! Both are gone, and your work area is enlarged.
